Spooktacular Halloween Events in San Diego

It’s October, which means time for spooktacular events to celebrate Halloween. Instead of visiting every pumpkin patch in town, why not take the little ghosts and gobblins out to something a little off the pumpkin path? Whether it’s trick-or-treating through theme parks or taking a ride on the Pumpkin Express Train, San Diego has lots of haunted events that won’t leave the wee ones frightened for years to come. Happy Halloween!

Brick-or-Treat at Legoland

A tradition for kids under 12, the Brick-or-Treat trail at LEGOLAND is a series of seven LEGO-themed stations along a small cul-de-sac where costumed friends hand out goodies to the kids. The treats don’t stop at the trail though–kids who come dressed in costume can enter into a contest, dance along with some spooky tunes, and catch a fireworks show in the evening. It’s a full day of Halloween-themed fun for all your little ghouls. Brick-or-Treat runs every weekend for the month of October. More info.
